Hopes grow for end to mass deaths of dolphins in the US

Experts are hoping that the recent deaths of large numbers of dolphins in the waters around New Jersey are now coming to an end, despite new deaths being reported.

Over 100 bottlenose dolphin deaths have been recorded in the region since early July. Two dolphins a week are still being washed up dead but it is thought that they may have died some time ago.

More than 800 dolphins have been found stranded from New York to North Carolina this year alone with the likely cause being a measles-like virus.
